This month we wanted to introduce you to Stephanie Michalicek, our Concert Chorale Vice President! Stephanie is a Cedar Rapids native who is extremely passionate about music and the arts. She currently works as the COO of Heuer Publishing, a play and musical publishing company that has been around Cedar Rapids since 1928. She also runs Michalicek Studios where she works as a private vocal teacher. Stephanie works with Cedar Rapids Opera Theater as a production manager. She has worked on South Pacific and will be working with the casts of Vavalleria Rusticana and Pagliacci in upcoming months.
Stephanie has her Bachelor of Arts in Vocal Performance from Lawrence University, her Masters of Music in Vocal Performance: Opera from the University of Missouri- Columbia, and has language intensive credits from Universite de Montpellier in Monpellier, France and Scuola Leonardo da Vinci in Florence, Italy. She is a proud member and alumnae chapter president of Delta Gamma.
Stephanie lives in Cedar Rapids with her spouse, Taylor Fiser, two dogs (both Pomeranians) Fiero and Oz, and a cat, Persephone (lovingly referred to as “Kitten”). She loves attending live concerts and musicals, can honk her nose like a clown, loves to laugh, and lives off of black coffee!
Thank you, Stephanie, for your dedication to the Cedar Rapids Concert Chorale!
